The Temple of Live Music
This unpretentious bar and music venue attracts a fun crowd of edgy locals and youthful expats. Drinks are cheap and the sound system is good—and the energy of partygoers remains high long after everything else has shut down for the night. The live music sets usually feature both up-and-coming local bands, as well as more established acts. While you might be disappointed at the size of the dance floor, this is as big as it gets in Beijing.
